The M's speak...

News from both Minnesota and Montana over the past two days. In Minnesota, expense is the biggest issue, even though the state has a recently upgraded driver's license program of their own. And, from an article in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune...

...Real ID Act impinges on the states' rights to handle issuing of driver's licenses, is unfunded by the federal government and isn't practical.

In Montana, the House passed a bill already approved by the Senate that rejects the Real ID Act... though that wouldn't be effective until October so there would be time to review all DHS released documents. There was an interesting quote from the end of this article about the news, showing that there are many different views on what the Act actually is....

Montana is among a number of state legislatures throughout the country rejecting Real ID, which seeks to crack down on illegal immigration by requiring proof of residency as a minimum standard for states to issue drivers’ licenses.

I am all for states opting out of Real ID. But we still need to fight to repeal this law get it off the books. After 2008 because any changes in leadership in those states could in fact by mandate re-instate the law for their state.

Michael, I totally agree. It's a three-front battle: in the states; in Congress; and via the commenting process -- which we think will reinforce both the state-by-state battles and the repeal movement by showing how broad the opposition is.
